Welcome to POET Molecular Rounds

POET National Virtual Molecular Rounds is held every month with a one hour monthly educational program at 10AM MT/ 9AM PT / 12 noon ET/ 1PM ATL.

POET is an academic program based out of the University of Calgary focused on Precision Oncology biomarker discovery, registries and access to novel diagnostics and therapeutics. POET strives to have accessible education across Canada for health care clinicians about molecular diagnostics and advancements in precision oncology biomarker driven practice. The education goals of this program are to provide:

  1. The latest developments in molecular oncology and precision medicine through local, national and international speakers.
  2.  A platform to discuss and understand retrospective patient-based cases with challenging clinical interpretation of comprehensive genomic profile results shared among experts.
  3. Discussion of hot-topics and challenges in molecular and polyomic diagnostics in relation to biomarker driven precision oncology therapeutics.

We look forward to this very informative virtual webinar series.
